Critic reviews for The Scientist
So far, seeing the show leave the ground a little bit has resulted in some fun and exciting stories that have been surprisingly well crafted.
"The Scientist" largely succeeds in launching 'Arrow' to a higher form of superhero storytelling, though not without a bit of seeming clumsiness.
With all these subplots struggling for screen time, one gets the feeling that there are far too many balls in the air to truly connect with any of them on an emotional level.
Even though Barry isn't quite Barry, the dynamic between him and Oliver was fantastic and I'm sorry we won't get much more of it.
"The Scientist"...makes that doe-eyed dork [Barry Allen] absolutely irresistible.
